    Great article..but as you say one persons experience is not necessarily anothers. i found that without my NIE I could do very little. i think it is more a matter of who you know not what you know

      Alan – Thanks for reading. Yes, knowing people is so helpful. That’s why I wanted to write this blog with Maria-Luisa featured so people could get to her with just a passport, get an account, and meet a new friend. Suerte con todo!

    hi there! so…cell phones. Did you have to get a completely new phone, or could you use your US iphone with a new sim card? if you get a new sim card, i assume that means you get a new phone number…and a new data plan? Sorry to be a total idiot, but i really have no idea how this will work! :)Kristin

      Hi Kristin –

      My husband and I got completely new phones. We were due. However, you CAN use your US iPhone with a new SIM card. Yes you will have a new plan and a new number. Not a dumb question at all! Let me know if I can help you in any other part of your move:) Suerte Kristin…Kate

    Hi Kate,
    Thanks for the refereral to Maria-Luisa at Sabadell. She was super helpful and very easy to set up our initial “foreigner” account so that we have it for our rental contract in connection with utilities. FYI she has moved branches and is now at Avenida Cardenal Benlloch 11 ( corner avenida del Puerto)
    46021 Valencia
